The start of a life change!

When my friend Joy introduced me to Kenzai it just took me 1 day to think about it before I signed up for Kenzai Body. Thanks Joy!
Keeping my weight is what I already call my struggle of life for many years. I have had good results in the past but after 1 or 2 years the drive had gone down and the weight up again.

From day 1 in the Kenzai Body program I was happy with the diet: it makes me choose what to eat and guides me in the healthy quantities I should have. When family, friends and colleagues ask me what I am not allowed to eat I tell them about all the good stuff I do eat. I simply forgot about the alcohol, chocolate and cheese I am not supposed to eat.

But in the next Kenzai (Body?) program I will take I will have to prove that I can do the program of exercises as well. The fracture in the vertebrae that stopped me from doing them in Kenzai Body 1 should have healed and with the last session of physical therapy today I already started doing more bicycle riding and hiking. Will need to find out what the trainers suggest but I feel I should just redo Kenzai Body again.

The last few weeks the daily lessons were tough for me as they were so much about how to exercise and what it would do to your body. I hope to experience that change in my muscles soon.
Honestly: I was jealous when I looked at the weekly pictures of my teammates! What an amazing results I have seen and read about.
Congrats team! I have enjoyed this journey together with you.
Scott and Lindsay, thanks for your support!

Menno, a huge congratulations from me on making through the program on diet alone. This is no mean feat and you should be very proud of yourself. Such great willpower - this will serve you well on your next program. Well done, and I can wait to see what you can achieve in 2018.

      Great work Menno! Don't get too down about the exercise being a reach for you. As you've seen, the huge majority of your progress is about what you eat. Keep up your new eating style and your body will continue to reward you. Layer in the exercise on top and you'll see amazing results. Good luck with it all. Congratulations on a strong 90 days, you are COMPLETE!

        Congratulations, Menno - it is so hard to dive into something, ready to commit, and then be told you can't totally do everything you'd like to. It's quite a mental challenge to change your goals, and I'm so impressed that you did so with grace. I love how you say, "When family, friends and colleagues ask me what I am not allowed to eat I tell them about all the good stuff I do eat." Yes, that's right! I hope you have good news on your back, and I look forward to seeing all you accomplish next round. Great work, Menno!

          You never gave up Menno. That says a lot about your inner strength and will to find good health and wellness. I was thankful for your honesty in the journey and you were always a great cheerleader. I hope you are able to reach more of your goals in your next part of the journey and wish you well.
